Shoot the Moon


Based on the Short Story “What Can I Tell You About My Brother” by Ryan Harty

Teenager Tommy Pendecrest, lives in a small, hopeless town, on the lower class side of the tracks. He’s a bench warmer on the football team, and someone who tends to keep a low profile. However, Tommy’s world is shaken when his older brother Victor comes home from Marine boot camp and kills captain of the football team, Rob Dawson’s dog, as revenge for dating his ex-girlfriend. The event forces Tommy to examine what it is about his brother that is worth looking up to and caring for.
